How’s it feel to be a fair weather fan? Where you been all year? Got a decent team and now you decide to show back up. 

Your hilarious Waskom couldn’t handle being hit in the mouth and it showed with all the personal fouls they got during the game ! EF should of won by 3 or more TD’s Waskom was lucky it was even close

So I guess when we beat y’all it will be because yall beat yourselves again? 😂

Everyone is wrong at some point but this is not my time, our defense is too good for WR. Ef and dfield have far better offensive and defensive teams than WR.  Yall gave up 28 to HS.  Gonna be a long afternoon for you Friday Nikki.

Okay, we will see about that Timothy. Just please admit that y’all were outplayed this time instead of making excuses.

And since you like comparing scores... we drummed Harmony and they put up a better game against EF than y’all did.

I'm comparing direct games you are comparing he played, she played, we played. We will hold wr to 21 or less and score 40+. You will be surprised by Waskom's defense.

Please keep making these outrageous predictions. Waskom has had a very weak schedule and only played 2 good teams this year. EF beat y’all and DF was a 2 point conversion away from beating y’all.

WR is garbage. Gonna get exposed Friday.

New Waverly put up 33 points on y’all and were a few mistakes away from making it very interesting.

Waskom to me took that game like EF took the Hemphill game, very lightly and it almost cost us

Well if they take any advice from Timothy this week they will take WR lightly and it WILL cost them.

What’s your expert opinion on this one @Pax ? 

This is about as even a matchup on paper that I've seen.  All stats are since district started.

West Rusk is scoring 49.3 points per game against defenses that give up 27.3 per game, so on average they are scoring 22.0 more points than defenses give up.  Waskom gives up 13.6 per game on average, so if West Rusk continues the trend, that's 36 points for West Rusk.

West Rusk is giving up 13.3 points per game vs offenses that score 24.9 on average, so they are holding offenses to 11.6 fewer points than their average.  Waskom averages 45.8 per game, so if that trend continues, WR would hold Waskom to about 34 points.

On the flip side, Waskom is scoring 45.8 vs defenses that give up 24.4 per game - or 21.4 points more.  West Rusk is giving up 13.3 per game, so once again, if Waskom continues that trend, they should score about 35 points against this West Rusk defense.

Waskom is giving up 13.6 per game to teams averaging 26.7 per game, or 13.0 points fewer.  West Rusk averages 49.3 per game, so take away the 13.0 points Waskom takes away on average, and West Rusk ends up with 36 points.

This game is a toss-up with both teams scoring in the mid-30s.  The actual score prediction is West Rusk in a tight 36-35 win.  It is worth noting that Waskom's QB was lost for the season in the Elysian Fields game.  My "swing" number - that is, the amount of points a team takes their opponent out of their game - for Waskom is +34.4 on the year.  The four games leading up to the EF game is a +44.6.  Since they lost their QB, that swing stat has dropped to +24.2.  West Rusk is a +33.6 on the year.  Whether or not this plays a part is TBD, but if I ignore Waskom's first four games, I get a 42-28 West Rusk win in this one.  I'd expect a good game either way.
